The Scala 2.12.x Distribution
This project morphs the
"org.scala-lang" % "scala-dist" % $version maven artifact
into a Scala
$version distribution (zip, tar.gz, deb, rpm, and msi).
To build a distribution, run:
universal:packageBin- Builds the universal zip installer
universal-docs:packageBin- Builds the universal documentation zip
debian:packageBin- Builds the Debian DEB file. requires dpkg-deb
rpm:packageBin- Builds the yum RPM file. requires rpmbuild
windows:packageBin- Builds the Windows MSI. requires WiX 3.6
s3Upload task's mappings are configured based on the platform
the installer is running on. On Windows, it builds the MSI; on another platform,
it'll create and upload the other packages in the above list. (Use
s3Upload::mappings for a dry-run.)
The version of Scala to package is derived from the most recent git tag,
or you can specify it using
This packager only works for Scala 2.11+ releases,
as earlier ones did not publish the
scala-dist artifact to maven.
Due to limited resources, the native packages are quite rudimentary. We welcome new maintainers!
If you're looking for the editor configurations that used to be in the tool-support directory, please see https://github.com/scala/scala-tool-support. They were moved out because they no longer ship with the Scala distribution. (New maintainers are welcome on the scala-tool-support project!)
The specification also used to be in this repo -- it is now a part of the main repository over at scala/scala.
- install Windows 7 professional N 64-bit, ensure network access to GitHub

The branching structure mimics that of scala/scala: branches for 2.11.x, 2.12.x, etc.
